B. Tech in Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a four-year undergraduate programme. The field of electrical and electronics engineering is involved in the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism.
Electrical and Electronics Engineering is one of the core Engineering branches started at Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology in the year 2004 with an undergraduate program (B.Tech) affiliated to M. G. University, Kottayam, Kerala with a sanctioned strength of 60 students. Since 2015 admission onwards, B.Tech degree program is affiliated to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU).
Courses offered by the department cater to the learning needs of all students. The focus is on clearing the basics of the students and then proceeding to the advanced level. Students learn the basic principles of all engineering courses, Mathematics, Computer-Aided Design, Network Theory, Measurements, Analog and Digital Electronics. Other than these, the department offers several discipline electives and covers most of the modern technologies like Electric Vehicle, Smart Grid and Robotics. Also the concept of machine learning and data analytics in the area of Electrical and Electronics.
The department organises regular visits to industries and power stations. It also arranges guest lectures from reputed scholars and industrial experts from the respective fields which immensely educate the students.
M.Tech in Industrial drives and control.
The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering started its Post Graduate program in Industrial Drives and Control (IDAC) affiliated to M. G. University, Kottayam, in the year 2010 and since 2015 admission onwards, IDAC M.Tech degree program is affiliated to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU).
Industrial drives are used in many different applications across the factory floor as a key part of the next generation of factory automation. There are many different types of motors used depending on the requirements, from turning shafts or driving pumps and fans. The electric motor in an industrial drive can use a range of different techniques, from brushed or brushless DC to variable-speed drives as well as single- and three-phase AC motors. The industrial drive combines a suitable motor with a drive or inverter to control the speed, torque and position, as well as switches, sensors and communications links as part of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
